Can really use some help... Nvidia Surround Q's

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey guys so I have recently upgraded my video cards and monitors. I went from Quad fire 6870 and 3 samsung 1920x 1080 LCD's to Dual-SLI 780's and 3 2560 x 1440p Qnix 2710 monitors (Korean LED's.) Now I have not used a Nvidia card since the 9800 GTX was new in the market... tongue.gif so I have been using AMD cards and in Xfire since then with little to no problems. From the time I put these cards in I have had little quirks here and there that has been bothering me and I have never had problems like these with my AMD cards. At the very elast I would know how to fix it. I feel I'm completely lost on Nvidia side. mad.gif

1st problem. I am in 7680 x 1440 resolution. and using Windows 7. My taskbar does not stay hidden. I do have the setting set to auto-hide but it just doesn't hide. Of course this is very annoying when gaming. mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif I am using a program called "Hidemytaskbar" at the moment as a temp solution to the problem but it is not a full hide. Windows start button is missing.

2nd problem. Any program I right-click on in the Taskbar the menu shows up on the top left portion of my left screen rather than showing up near the Taskbar. VERY VERY ANNOYING! mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

3rd problem. I am having resolution problems with games. At first I noticed it was with Borderlands (both 1 & 2) where if I wanted to play at 7680 x 1440 res it will actually show it in 7680 x 2880 instead. I have also noticed in League of Legends where the game will not move into the middle screen no matter what in Window mode / Borderless. Screen stays on my 1st or3rd which is kind of annoying. I can play LoL only in Full screen mode. Some resolution problems on like 1 or 2 other games as well. lie Civilization 5 gives me weird resolutions (example: 1400 x 800) though it might just be a civilization thing. mad.gif

4th problem. AMD has something to customize your program window sizes to your liking. I was looking for something similar to that for Nividia cards. When I try to maximize a window to its max size it covers 1 1/2 monitors rather than all 3 or even just 1.

5th problem. (I am complaining too much aren't I?tongue.gif) I have a projector that is also connected and in Nvidia control panel it sees it there in "setup multiple display" section but I have no idea how to activate t his display as it is grayed out. (its my movie screen:p) On 6970's I had 3 samsung LCD in Eyefinity and the projector separate. I would like it to be like this if possible. Al screens are connected via dual DVI-D cables but I have other type of cable lying around.

6 problem. (this might be monitor related but I hope not) once in a while my screens turn black as if the video cards cannot detect them. they blink a few seconds and then come back on. these monitors overclocked to 100hz if it matters but some of these problems I have noticed before they were overclocked.

I am starting to regret getting these cards. mad.gif

I really appreciate any help given.

Thanks.

Oh and YES I am on the latest Nvidia drivers.
